Annually, we host the Senior Health and Wellness Day event, however due to COVID-19 our plans have adjusted to better serve our seniors. We realized that this is a very difficult time for everyone, especially our older adult community and we want to be here for them however we can. In lieu of our annual event, the FreeWishes Foundation has curated a drive-thru wellness event, “Wellness on Wheels”. We are taking health and wellness to different communities throughout the Metro Atlanta area. Seniors will be provided with as much health and wellness information as possible as well as itmes that can be utilized to stimulate their mental and physical health. Additionally, FreeWishes will provide healthy snacks (granola bars, fruits, water, etc.) and lunch. To get involved in our future events, please email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are over 37 million Americans that suffer from food insecurities, and 11 million are children. During the pandemic, the number of food insecurities grew significantly due to increased unemployment, the Covid-19 virus, and remote learning.Our program identified the crisis in our communities and expanded to meet the needs of the people. The Feed Program provides boxes of food along with supplies needed to stay healthy. We shall provide the following but not limited to:
- Food for Families: Provide a drive-through pantry so families can pick up boxes of food. The drive-through provides safety measures for the staff and families.
- Mobile Food Pantry: Our Mobile Food Pantry provide food to senior citizens through our drive-through pick-up, and we go into the selected communities and deliver to those who cannot pick up the food boxes.
